Reviewed by NotionView from Madrid, NM on Monday, March 3, 2014I'm a big fan of Mountain Hardware and this jacket is just awesome! The quality is great and the design, as usual, incorporates pockets and features that are well thought out and practical. The Drystein line is top notch and the technology makes this the jacket to take when you aren't sure what weather you will be up against. A perfect lightweight workhorse for hikes, offers a waterproof product with warmth and wind resistance. Runs true to size.
Reviewed by RH from California on Saturday, February 8, 2014This is my second Mountain Hardware jacket. I LOVE the design, the fit and how light and breathable it is for a waterproof jacket. I wear them sailing several days a week (including dinghy sailing, so they sometimes end up in the ocean), and was not surprised when the metal part of the zipper on my first jacket started to corrode after a year or so. But this jacket's zipper got REALLY stuck after only the second or third wear, and when I inspected it closely it appears that the teeth don't line up correctly with the clasp. The two-way zip feature doesn't work at all, and even zipping the jacket from all the way unzipped is really hard. I am exchanging and hoping that this was only the particular one that I got. If the new one doesn't work out, will probably get a similar model from Patagonia with a one-way zipper.
Reviewed by winnie from raleigh on Friday, February 7, 2014the reason i like it , due to the extra thin arm, i usually wear either XS or 0, but most outclothing is bigger than normal, this one is fit me very well due to the noodle arm , which i have to put reference here from other person's comment. once i saw the comment i said wow , that is exactly what i want :)
Reviewed by Dragonfly girl from Ohio on Monday, November 18, 2013I was able to purchase this jacket when it was a barn burner so I was able to get it at a really good price, less than some do the other Dry-Q jackets and this is their top tier jacket. I am giving it 5stars because if its overall performance in the rain and for breath ability. While I am not an alpine climber I do a fair amount of outdoor activity and I don't let the fact it is raining stop me. I tend to sweat so I really love the breath ability of this jacket; that was a major draw for me. I have two other waterproof rain jackets but if it is raining and humid I often feel clammy on the inside, which I hate. So far it has wicked away humidity from inside the jacket really well. Be warned if you are considering this jacket, this may wick too well from inside the jacket and actually leave you too cool. Read up well on the performance and wicking ability especially if you are going to spend lots of time in really cold weather.
I did not have a problem with fit. I am 5"8 and normally wear size 14. I ordered the Xl and it fits well, a little snug across the hips, but still room for layering. I did not notice any issues in the arms the other reviewer mentioned and I have larger arms. I really like the soft shell like panels along the sides and at the elbows. This offers really nice movement. My only complaint, and I did not remove a star because I am using the jacket outside of its intended design, is the hood. It is attached and it made to cover a helmet. So it is larger and has a sturdy brim along the front. Without a helmet it is was too large, but I have found if I fold the brim to the inside, it keeps the hood flatter and allows it to be more wearable. I almost sent it back because of the hood, but decided to keep it because of the price I got with this as Barn Burner.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Outdoorswoman from NH on Thursday, January 31, 2013This appears to be nicely designed jacket, with the very notable exception of the arms. The armpits are cut way too high. This jacket would appear to fit only a woman with skinny noodle arms and would work best if she didn't move her arms at all. Very disappointing and unlike all other Mountain Hardware products that I have (and I am a Mountain Hardware fan.)
